Kickstarter Bones You'd Like To See

Recommended Posts

I'm sure it's a moot point at this late stage, but here's what I would still like to see.

 

Air/water elements

Frost giant grunts

Anhurian men-at-arms

Molds/slimes/oozes/jellies/jams/preserves

Bathalians

Hill giants

Aboleth

Skeletal mammoth

Mounted

Warlord packs

invisible characters (clear plastic)

I've got the 2 frost giant grunts (3 of each) so I don't care if they get added or not, but I think they would be a good paid stretch goal. And yes, I'd forgotten about the hill giant. He needs to make an appearance.

Well, we can at least hope that some of these things will show up in Bones releases post-Kickstarter.

 

Molds/slimes/oozes/jellies/jams/preserves

 

:D

 

Bathalians

 

Oh definitely yes! These things nicely cross the divide between "things that would work for fantasy" and "things for my IMEF/Nova Corps troopers to shoot up in the corridors of a derelict starship."

With the incredible response to the Kickstarter, how about some plastic 3D Dungeon Tiles!?!!?

 

I think there's a market for these. Something nicer than the 2D mats and tiles from various manufacturers, something less expensive than Dwarven Forge, and something less labor intensive than molds.

 

My buddy has been ASSAULTING me to buy into the kickstarter. Thing is, I haven;t done fantasy in forever and really have/had(?) no plans to! Something along these lines would tip my hand I thinks......

Probably not going to happen in this KS.

 

However, there are plenty (and I do mean plenty) of people that are fantasy-only that are looking to trade their Chronoscope Bones figures for Fantasy ones. Buy in at Vampire anyway, and start trading your fantasy figures for Space Marines, NOVA corp troopers and the like. You could even ditch the Sophie to order extra sets of those figures. I'll bet you'd make out like a bandit.

Sorry, I didn't mean in THIS Kickstarter, just in general. Maybe NEXT one?

 

I think Reaper making some 3D tiles would sell even better....

Late to the game, but heck I won't be able to rest till my voice his heard (kinda ;P). But I'd love to see:

 

Silver dragon 65144

Guardian Beast 14234

 

make it into the Kickstarter - Silver dragon would be an ace finishing item (I reckon we'll get one $2million target which we've a hope of reaching on the last day if the numbers keep turning - however this last jump is a whopping 440,000 so I suspect Reaper would have the next mark well over $2mill if they keep increasing the upgrade range).

 

Also I'm surprised we didn't see any (Unless I've missed one) of the "green/silver" models being added to the Kickstarter for Bones - would have thought they would have been ideal adds considering some people were lucky enough to be able to afford and get the originals

I like the dungeon tiles idea, but I feel that it's probably still better in the long run to buy a mould and cast them yourself. However, sometimes I find I wish I had just one specific type of tile just to use on a base.

 

I would like to see some spare weapons and wings etc show up after the kickstarter.

My list?

 

A set of highwaymen / brigands.

A horse-mounted figure (or a set of normal animals like horses, bears, wolves)

A "orkpocalypse" style set of town guard (I love running urban campaigns.)

More dungeon decorations

A human-sized royalty set (king, queen, nobles, maybe their guards)

More chronoscope figures.

A vehicle of some sort (a wagon and oxen? horses and a carriage?)

Or one of those huge diorama pieces like Ral Partha used to do back in the day.

 

I know all my stuff is pretty boring, but it's stuff that gets used often.

I'm right there with you on this (see my post on page 5 of this thread and Wiglaf's even earlier on page 4).

 

I dearly love this kickstarter, but to be honest I already have literally thousands of minis. Most suggestions by backers have been for more creature minis, even specific sculpts that are already available (albeit in metal). Meanwhile it kind of frustrates me that no company has yet filled the highly desired (and lucrative I'm sure) niche of dungeon/cavern sets that are both inexpensive (unlike DF) and usable right out of the box (unlike HA). Grey Bones pieces would be perfect, the best of both worlds.

 

Even if Reaper was unwilling to produce them during this KS, a nice bonus goal of "we promise to start working on this idea" would be enough for me, similar to what Steve Jackson did during the Ogre kickstarter by having a stretch goal that, when reached, he would agree to start work on a new Car Wars game.

 

Oh well, I guess we'll see what happens in the future....

I'm planning to make printed dungeons stuck to magnetically-attractive plastic sheet like signwriters use. So I'm more interested in more dungeon furnishings... bookshelves for example.

I'd like to see something that can stand eye to eye with the storm giantess. How about this one as part of the finale:

Would also like to see a t-shirt with the image below as a purchase able option, or maybe a poster. How many times will she have to hit F5 to appear as a bones fig in the next reveal?

      What's better to start my KS Bones topic than Mr. Bones himself ?

      "You take your game seriously. Now it's time for a serious screen.
      In October of 2018, Dog Might released the first fully sculpted GM Screen, the Valhalla Screen. Since then, we have released over 30 more designs, including officially licensed screens for: Pathfinder, Call of Cthulhu, and Vampire: The Masquerade. We have also designed screens for you favorite shows, such as Relics and Rarities and the Critical Role stream of Undeadwood. Over the last year and a half, our Valhalla Screens have proven to be our most sought after product. "
       
      ... Would it surprise anybody here to know I want one? 
      If I can't have one, at least I can spread the word. ;p

      So I just got a metric ton o' plastic.  Tanks, CAVs, tons of scenery!  So DAMN excited.
       
      But...
       
      There's a lot.  Any of y'all with game experience want to enlighten me on what would be a fun few models to start with, so I could get a game going soon-ish?  Like, would you build all four of a CAV (just in case you didn't back this one: you get four of each model in your order) or four different CAVs?  When would you ever field four at a time?
       
      I'll probably build all four vehicles of each type because they'll build fast and look really cool.  The CAVs will take more time to paint, so any advice on which ones I should build first to get a fun, casual game on would be most appreciated!

      Imagine my surprise when on of my failed KS projects got this update, and I got a link to download the pdf!
       
       
       
      Here is an update from Andrew Shields.
       I want you to have this game. I acquired the rights to the Axes and Anvils game from Mike Nystul without taking on his obligations from this Kickstarter. 
      What can you expect?
      The chart shows how I plan to give you this fantastic game as thanks for your enthusiasm, even if it was over seven years ago. I do not have the resources to send out print copies (much less patches, miniatures, stones, and other extras.) 
      I did not have funds from this Kickstarter or from him for development, and in the end I did not have a publisher (though we've been through two over the years.) I cannot give you what this Kickstarter promised, but I will try to make things right as best I can. 
      I am approximating here, rather than inviting specific corrections or cross-walks between add-on rewards and my future plans. If you want to discuss the gifts I am offering, I'm available to do so, but if you want to talk about what the Kickstarter owes you, that is beyond my scope.
      How will you get your digital gifts?
      I will use your emails as recorded in Kickstarter to send complimentary copies through DriveThruRPG's system so you can add them to your libraries there. If you do not get an email and think you were supposed to, contact me. [[email protected]] I get a confirmation email from DriveThruRPG with codes for each email address, and I can give you your codes. (Give it a day or so, I'll be sending the emails right after I post this.)
      How does the "Shields Up! Axes and Anvils" compare to the "Castle Nystul Axes and Anvils"?
      My version of the game is not exactly the same as what Mike Nystul would have made. However, I used the pitch on the Kickstarter as my guiding inspiration as I developed the game. 
      The creative contributions of the faction-level backers are included in the finished result, credited in the book. I plan to continue development of Axes and Anvils resources that will include some greater detail from the contributions they have already made.
      I used a professional graphic designer, art by David Okum (who designed the seals for the dwarven overclans and other factions in consultation with the high-level backers), other purchased art (by Marcin and a map by Vandel), and my own art (for the GM book). I do not have the art by Jeff Laubenstein, as he did not grant me permission to use it.
      Where can I find out more?
      You can find the Axes and Anvils game products on DriveThruRPG.com {sales link removed] . You can find links to the products and descriptions on the Axes and Anvils blog here. 
      The quickstart has an introductory adventure, and it is "pay what you want" so you can access it for free.  I do not anticipate making a hardback copy of the rules at this time. "Under the Mountain" is the GM book that is attached to the main rulebook as a second half, and it is nearly ready to share (in the final round of adjustments with the graphic designer; it's laid out already).  The Clan Book is built out and is with the graphic designer now.  As digital files are ready, I will share them as reflected in this chart. 
      What Delays Remain?
      The print version of the rulebook and the quickstart have proofs in the mail to me now. The rulebook was out, but I changed the link when I bought a domain for the official website, so the print version is offline until I get the new print. The quickstart proof is also in the mail to me. 
      As the work neared completion I was attempting to get everything together and finished to triumphantly release all at once, but the process of delays and revisions can be disruptive. The GM book and the clan book are going through the final stages, print will be available for everything but the character packs, and the suite of Axes and Anvils game rules and supplements will be available.
      How can people support Shields Up! Publishing and Axes and Anvils?
      If you want to express your support financially, I invite you to buy any of the print products to go along with your digital copies.
      Also, you can go to the quickstart (which is "pay what you want") and contribute in that way.
      What comes next?
      I currently have plans for a number of Axes and Anvils resources, including a book on adventuring in Stoneshadow (the default setting). Updates will be shared on the Axes and Anvils blog. I will also be writing fiction for Axes and Anvils, integrating stories into my Patreon offerings.
      Axes and Anvils is poised to grow. The format is designed to encourage casual gamers and open tables, and the creative options reward experienced players too. People can try out the quickstart for free. The game's basic rules are inexpensive, and for all the products, if you buy the paper copy you get the .pdf for free.
      Thank you.
      Thank you for your faith in a game that places more emphasis on "we" than "me." In the coming year I will be running an open table online, and I will invite you to come and try the game out if you have interest and availability. 
      Now you will have what you need to make your own legends in the world of Axes and Anvils.
       
       
      So many thanks to Andrew Shields who took this on after the original project creator failed, may it be successful for him
